Default Ricer sound coming from my 92 prelude si h23a1 swap?

okay heres the story. i bought a 92 prelude si 5 speed with a h23a1 non vtec swap about a month ago for 2000. i love the car and so far nothing is wrong with it. i would be a 100 percent happy with it if it didnt have this no offense but mexican ricer sound. when im driving at about 3 thousand rpm in every gear i get this vibrating ricer sound and then it goes away at about 3700 rpms. it only does it when the car is moving. sitting there and reving it it does it a little bit but not bad. i dont know if its my exhaust or just something vibrating. i have dc headers on it and injen cold air. thats about it.. anyone know or have any opinoins on what to check???

Not sure exactly the sound you're talking about. But since you say it goes away at 3700 rpm it's hard to say. The "ricer" sound usually comes from an aftermarket intake or exhaust system. It would be helpful if you told us where the sound is coming from (front or back of car). If I were you I would start by putting back the stock intake because like I said aftermarket intakes can definitely create a ricer noise.
